Hey guys I come in peace! lol


I need some of your wisdom. Just picked up a 2000 yz400 from a buddy of mine and have a couple questions. Is there a way to figure out what the bike actually is? Like plug the VIN number in and BAM! The reason I ask is I thought it was a 426 in 2000 and the bike may be a WR from the oversize tank, kickstand and 18in rear wheel. Not sure. Also, bike has a brand new motor but just needs to be timed. How difficult would that be?

What about parts compatability? yz250f, wr250f, yz400/426/450, wr400/426/450?

Any help would be appreciated thumper dudes:worthy:

For parts compatibility you can just see if the part #'s match any new part # here on the T.T. store except for the first digits before the - like sta-000-00 vs. 5ba-000-00. As long as the digits after the first few (sta) match then your good. It has worked for me recently. You could takre a picture and post it over on the yzf forum and Grayracer will tell ya.

The tenth digit is X so that makes it a 99 yz400 but how do I know its not a wr? I will try the TT store thanks Tim:thumbsup:

That doesn't really work very well, mostly because there is so much interchangeability within the entire YZ line that there are parts on an '08 YZ450 that were introduced on a 1998 YZ250. There are also other parts that fit a few models, and still more that only fit one.

As far as the model goes, there was a label on the crossbar that runs across the sub frame between the rear fender and the airbox, under the seat. If it's still there, it will tell you.
